Light Up Ya Lighter

Spearhead, Michael FrantiBuy this song

It never makes no sense, it never makes no sense
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter
Fire fire fire 
Armageddon is a deadly day
Armageddon is a deadly way
They comin' for you everyday
While senators on holiday 

The army recruiters in the parking lot
Hustling the kids there jugglin' pot 
"Listen young man, listen to my plan, 
Gonna make you money, gonna make you a man"

Bom, bom 

Here's what you get
An M-16 and a kevlar vest 
You might come home 
With one less leg
But this thing will surely keep a bullet out of your chest 

So come on, come on 
Sign up, come on 
This one's nothing like Vietnam 
Except for the bullets, except for the bombs
Except for the youth that's gone 

So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter
Fire fire fire
So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter 
Fire fire fire 

Tell me president, tell if you will
How many people does a smart bomb kill?
How many of em do you think we got?
The general says we never miss a shot 
And we never ever ever keep a body count
We killin' so efficiently we can?t keep count 
In the Afghan hills the rebels still fightin'
Opium fields keep on providin'
The best heroin that money can buy 
And nobody knows where Osama been hidin'
The press conferences keep on lyin'
Like we don't know 

So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter 
Fire fire fire
So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter 
Fire fire fire 

Some say engine, engine number nine
Machine guns on a New York transit line 
The war for oil is a war for the beast
The war on terror is a war on peace 
Tellin' you they?re gonna protect you
Tellin' you that they support the troops 
Don't let them fool you with their milk and honey
No, they only want your money 
One step forward and two step back
One step forward and two step back
Why do veterans get no respect?
PTSD and a broken back
Take a look at where your moneys gone, see
Take a look at what they spend it on 
No excuses, no illusions 
Light up ya lighter, bring em home

So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter 
Fire fire fire 
So we keep it on, till ya comin' home
Higher and higher 
Fire, fire, fire, light up ya lighter 
Fire fire fire
